Demystifying Ransomware and Defending Against Future Attacks

Ransomware is an ever-evolving form of malware designed to encrypt files on a device. Malicious actors then demand payment in exchange for decryption. As attacks continue to rise, the government is creating a counter-ransomware strategy. What impact will these policies have on the relationship between the public and private sectors? The expert panelists from academia and research will discuss during a free webinar. 

We’d like to invite you to tune in on Oct. 25 at 11:00 a.m. (ET) for a panel discussion with Georgia Tech experts and have your questions answered live. Register today!
